This lap sized quilt was made with the 'strip-quilt race' technique (you can find the video on you tube).  It's made from a 40 piece roll of strips.  This is the fastest technique I've ever seen for piecing a quilt.  You can make the top in about 2 hours.  Anyway, this quilt was commissioned, and the client wanted quotes embroidered on it, so I used my embroidery machine to do that.  I used a larger piece of similar fabric for the border and back, and added a dark brown, 1" inner border for accent.  The quilting was simple, verticle lines throughout the quilt top and stitch-in-the-ditch around the borders.  The quote says:  "Always do your best.  What you plant now, you will harvest later."  Theodore Roosevelt.
